Turfgrasses can range from apomictic to dioecious, from self-pollinated to cross-pollinated, and can have different ploidy levels, with some species being autopolyploid or allopolyploid.
In autopolyploids, although the diversity of genetic potential increases by the development of new alleles, as has been shown in Tolmiea menziesii (Soltis & Rieseberg, 1986) and in Dactylis glomerata (Lum aret & Barrientos, 1990), an autopolyploid has very little chance of becoming established because multivalents form during meiosis, causing partial sterility.
